"[The] famous lawn tennis player met with an extraordinary accident while attempting to open a soda-water bottle at his training quarters, the Crescent Club, Brooklyn. Failing to uncork the bottle, he tried to push the cork in, which resulted in breaking the neck of the bottle and badly cutting his right hand. Mr. Wright dropped the bottle, falling in a faint upon the broken glass, a piece of which inflicted a severe gash above the eye. Mr. Wright's injuries were so serious that a special steamboat was obtained to take him to New York, where he was placed in a hospital. It is impossible to say now whether he will be able to take his place at Wimbledon."
